Holding On

Written by: Caleah Buil

There's only a strand of rope left
                                                   But I'm still holding on to that cliff
It looks like its going to crack and fall
                                                    I keep holding on
I don't look down
I can't look down
Makes me cling for that rope
It takes all my strength and will to climb up
                                               Just so I can see that mountain top
But as soon as I'm there
I hear something tear
                                           And I'm sent tumbling into the air
My feet touch rock and I'm stuck holding the rope again 
I keep climbing to reach the end
                                                   I want to let go
To be free of the pain that flows
  All the pressure and weight feel like a ton
But I know if I want to reach the top
                                                           I got to keep holding on
